- 125 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream
- FunCakes Flavour Paste Lemon Meringue
- FunCakes Edible Metallic Paint Copper
- FunCakes Food Colour Gel Yellow

- 150 g unsalted butter

- 2x Wilton Tip #1A Round

Prepare 300 g FunCakes Mix for Gluten free Macarons according to the instructions on the package. Divide the batter into two portions and color them with the food colour gel yellow and green. Put the 2 tips in two decorating bags and fill them both with batter.
Place the macaron mat on a baking tray and pipe egg shapes onto the macaron mat, if necessary help the batter a little by pushing it into an egg shape using a cocktail stick. Gently tap the baking sheet with the macaron mat on the counter so that the batter becomes evenly distributed. Let it air dry for two hours.
Preheat the oven to 140°C (convection oven 130°C).
Bake the macarons in about 15-20 minutes until done. If the macarons have a ribbed appearance, they have not dried long enough or have been baked too short.
Make splatters by using a brush on the macaron shells with the FunCakes Metallic Paint Copper and let it dry for a while.
Prepare 125 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream according to the instructions on the packet, season with the FunCakes Flavouring paste Lemon Meringue and place in a piping bag. Fill the macarons with the lemon meringue buttercream and leave in the fridge for a day for the tastiest and best result.
